Apply soon – Request an intern for your summer camp or conference!

A DPF Intern is a valuable resource for any camp, conference or other regional event! Interns are more than just a counselor, they provide special programming on peace and justice issues and serve as a resource and mentor for youth. DPF seeks to make interns available for as many camps and conferences as possible each summer, but there are always more requests for interns than interns available, so get your requests in early! If you would like an intern to participate in your summer camp or event, please complete the Request an Intern Form found below.

Please note:

  • Your region may apply for more than one event! In fact, this improves the chances that we will be able to place an intern in your region. 
  • Because DPF Interns may need to arrive late or leave early for overlapping events, they should always be considered an an EXTRA staff person, not counted as the minimum number of counselors or chaperones.This will also make it easier to schedule them for workshops and other program leadership you’d like them to provide.
  • We are unable to accommodate requests during General Assembly as all Interns will be attending!
  • Please be aware that completion of this request does not guarantee the presence of an intern at your event. While we make every attempt to fill as many requests as possible, we often receive more requests than placements available.

Application deadline – Friday, March 15, 2019.
Notification of Intern Assignments – Friday, April 12, 2019.
